Schoenberg: A Survivor from Warsaw TSO PREMIERE
Brahms: A German Requiem
A masterpiece for orchestra, chorus and soloists, A German Requiem is the largest piece of music Brahms ever wrote. Johannes Brahms called it a “human” requiem. His intent was to comfort the living with his music and the texts from Scripture he chose to accompany it and he succeeds joyously and brilliantly. Arnold Schoenberg’s work for men’s chorus and orchestra reaffirms the beauty of life as it depicts the story of a survivor from the Warsaw ghetto during World War II and his return to his homeland.
Complimentary “Concert Comments” with the conductor and guest artist take place one hour before the performance and give you insight into what you’re about to hear.
